    My wife and I are expecting our 3rd child next May. We just found out last week :D

    We like to try to be creative when we tell our friends and family that we are expecting. We think that we can get to Halloween without her showing much and would like to have her costume bbe the way that we announce the pregnancy. So I thought I'd see if anyone has any good ideas.
    So far I have come up with only a couple:

    1. Dress her up as a car and put a "baby on board" sign on her.
    2. A pregnant nun
    3. Or McCain's VP's daugther ;)

    All ideas are appreciated

    Dress her up with a fake pregnant belly. That will be nice and direct, yet may stump them for a bit since it is a simple give away.

    Make a fake toilet and mount it to her front somehow so she can throw up in it at regular intervals. At least, that's what I remember from the first couple months of my wife being pregnant. :p

    "I'm with Stupid" and pointing down. Kinda harsh but funny.

    "Homemade pumpkin patch" and paint her belly orange like a pumpkin or something similar.

    I ROFL'D at that!

    I'm a total fan of dressing her up in flannel and stained jeans carrying a 6-pack of Bush Beer. Drunk pregnant baby mommies are always winners!

    Sorry to all women who drink while carrying a baby and wear flannel.

    I was wondering if Bush Beer actually exists, so I googled it, and came up with this.

    Simply strap an Alien 'chestburster' to the bump (with an appropriate amount of fake blood) and she can regale partygoers with the tale of how she became impregnated by an horrific beast.

    I am frankly, horrified...









    ... that it got to post ten to suggest this.

    Alien in the stomach, no question.

    For the anatomically-challenged I feel compelled to point out that given the location of the uterus, for the alien suggestion to be appropriate in this context it would have to be an alien "abdomen-burster". :)

    Costume Idea

    You can always go with the standard issue Nun costume. Certain to send you to hell but, you'll probably get some laughs.

    She is soon to be 29.

    I like the Alien reference but our parents won't get it.

    My wife is a good sport as she was the one at her work Christmas party sang "Like a Virgin" for karoke when she was 7 1/2 months pregnant :D

    I suggest these two very subtle ideas:

    1. A costume allowing for a bare belly - the belly painted with a big red bullseye.

    2. I'm thinking Quato from Total Recall.

    It exists. It's a belgian brewer who unfortunately can not sell under this name
    because Busch is afraid of confusion with Bush. This is the bottle at it is sold in the netherlands and belgium.

    Oh, and your wife, can't she somehow carry a picture of your other kids and implying that she's carrying a 'spare'?

    Does she have a Burberry purse, an Adidas hooded jumper, and a sparkle-studded baseball cap?

    I have an idea....

    Firstly, Congratulations.
    Suggestions? Hmm... Dress her up as a fried Egg, maybe her belly can be the yellow yolk or something - you? You get to dress as a bag of fertilizer.
    That should raise a few eyebrows.

    But I do like the Nun idea too.

    Slightly off topic, but I'm trying to get my wife to dress our newborn up as a vampire with a fake boob hanging over her...




    *wonders how many people DONT get that*

    Oh, and go with the Alien....

    I like the arrow idea, but have it point up, not down. :p

    When questioned, she need only say "Gifted child.".
